    You are going to have to explain why the “winner” forfeited the match. Was his army list invalid?

    Very excited about the new chaos book, although by the sounds of it, chaotic rites of war might be the most speculative bit of the rumours. God I hope it’s right, but it’s in nearly EVERY wishlisting rumour ever, and it sounds like none of the people delivering solid rumours have read that bit of the book themselves (at least in the rumours I’ve read).

    Sevatar looks so awesome. For anyone wondering why so many people think he’s a great anti-hero, read “Prince of Crows”. He was the Night Lords 1st Captain, and probably the shiftiest space marine ever made.

    Winner of FoB had (according to him) accidentally used “loaded” dice (they had 2 5’s and no 2’s) once this was discovered he immediately offered himself up to forfeit and give his prize support to the second place player.

    The issue was the 2nd place player (after having his list ok’d by the tourney staff) played the entire tourney with a illegal list. This was discovered before the final game and they corrected it to the best of their ability where he then lost to the guy who was maybe using a single loaded dice at that time (2 dice of his 120 were loaded and one was forgotten at a previous table).

    Both players have since then forfeit their placings/prize support.

      Man, that sucks!

      Bad idea to buy loaded dice that look similar to your playing dice! If you are going to joke around with things like that, buy them in a different colour/size. Although maybe loaded dice are only available in the standard, small, “GW” chessex style. Never looked myself.

      It’s really bad when you get things like that turn up at the end of the tournament. Because it’s too late to correct them at that point, there’s so many “what ifs”.

    Are the FoB lists posted anywhere? I’m really curious about Chris Carlile’s Iyanden list.

      Not to my knowledge, no.

      But, Josh’s list was illegal because he had a character with the wrong chapter tactics in a White Scars list. However, he thought he cleared it with the TOs before coming, so thought his list was legal. It turned into a big mess afterwords though, as other players felt that it was unfair.

        Yeah, that would be really frustrating for other players. But at the same time, if it’s an honest mistake you can’t rage too hard. There’s also the factor of whether it was a material difference or not. Sometimes people get a bit outraged, because it’s a “reason” for why they lost. Even if it played no part.

        Still, it’s rotten to feel cheated. Even if that’s an overreaction. It’s a nasty feeling. And no way for the TO to fix it at that point, without causing more issues.

          Yeah, exactly. It is more about the fact that other players were put off.
